As antiquated as it may seem, the fax machine is alive and well. In some industries, it’s still an important part of standard work processes. However, for an increasing number of organizations, faxing a huge hassle. Maybe your office did away with your fax machine years ago, or perhaps you work in a small company that never had one in the first place. The cost of the landline alone is aggravating for any highly mobile organization.
Enter HelloFax. HelloFax is an online fax company that, after signing into whatever Microsoft account you may have (Windows Live, Hotmail, etc.), allows you to fax up to 50 free pages of faxes per month. To receive faxes, you have to pay $7.99/month, a considerably cheaper option than paying for a machine and a landline.
